Stack’s Bowers Galleries Rarities Night

Welcome to Rarities
, a highlight of our Official Auction of the Whitman Spring Expo. Our
Rarities Night catalogs have attracted attention for many years, and provide a
focal point for those seeking the rarest of the rare, the finest of the fine.
Our present offering continues the tradition.

Leading off the sale will be the ESM Collection of United
States Half Cents, featured in a special section of the catalog. Comprising 55
coins, this is a complete set of half cents by Guide Book variety. It is
ranked #2 Current Finest on the PCGS Registry in the categories Half Cents
Basic Set, Circulation Strikes (1793-1857) and Half Cents with Major Varieties,
Circulation Strikes (1793-1857), with a #4 All-Time Finest ranking on the
former set, #3 All-Time Finest ranking on the latter set. Coins such as the
Mint State 1793 and the AU-55 1796 are of legendary importance. It is one of
our most significant half cent offerings in recent years, not surprising
considering the quality of our other offerings from the ESM Collection.

We are also extremely pleased to offer numismatic treasures
from other notable name collections. The E. Horatio Morgan Collection will
forever echo in the halls of numismatics, and our March 2020 Rarities Night
session will be highlighted by two incredible rarities from this source—1884
and 1885 Proof trade dollars. These important landmark rarities resided in good
company in this cabinet with the famous 1893-S dime, an 1876-CC twenty-cent
piece, the 1838-O half dollar, and other great rarities which we have presented
in early sales. Only once in a generation, (and sometimes not even that often),
does a collection offer these.

I also draw your attention to the Harrington Collection of
Capped Bust gold and nineteenth century Proof coins. All of these pieces have earned
a green sticker from CAC and will draw bids from all directions.  

Collecting federal coins by design types is a challenging
pursuit, especially if you are seeking high grades. The Macon Collection coins
that will cross the block on Rarities Night include some very rare, beautiful,
and desirable coins.

Wait! There’s more! A lot more, to be sure. The Erie Canal
completion medal in gold, by C.C. Wright, has few equals. Once it
crosses the block, it is likely that no amount of money could secure a duplicate.

Be sure to peruse the catalog carefully or view the sale
online at  It is
probably correct to say that there are enough rarities for two or three
Rarities Night sales!

Welcome to a rendezvous with numismatic destiny!
